My school doesn't use a point system. Instead they use a computation to come up with your "likely-hood to succeed". They take our totaly GPA, grades from our core science classes(Anatomy,Physio,Micro), and grades from all English classes and come up with a percentage. You have to get at least a 70% to be eligable for the program and then it is all random. They basically pull your name out of a hat. They used to take the top % down the list, but then they realized that the "best" students dont alway make the "best" nurses. We are not required to take any tests before applying to the program.
Mixy- In my acceptance letter they said that I have to take a test before the semster begins and that it will take 5-6 hours. It is supposed to test our general knowledge, do you think it is the NET test? I noticed you were taking it in your 1st semester, like me, but my school didn't give me the name of the test.
